Extend MVC LabelFor Method

by jsylvest last modified Jan 28, 2014 12:02 PM

The LabelFor method provides strongly typed labels using lambda expressions. Unfortunately, the default MVC one doesn't provide a way to add extra attributes and if you don't want the text from the field variable you have to use the DisplayNames data annotations. The method here uses the variable name or data annotation DisplayName, but allows the Camel Case variable to be split into words, add a colon to the end, add extra text, and/or specify an id value for the label.
